So did you buy the ARB bumper before you did the BL, and then modify the bumper to fit right with the BL?
yea I did...my buddy down in Richmond mad a bracket and welded it onto the frame horns and then bolted the bumper to it.
here some pictures of it.


here are some pictures of my brother and I on Carova Beach...just north of Corolla Beach in the Outer Banks this past July
my brother just bought his '08 Xterra SE


my new Alcan Springs...damn these things can flex! need to get some longer shocks to get them to flex even more :)

Always nice to see a fellow 1st gen blue X owner! :D


Don't want to jack your thread just wanted to show mine compared to yours, the blue is quite a good color when you begin to mod it. Other wise it doesn't really stand out. I love what you have done with yours its awesome! Get us some more pictures man! :D

Awsome X man!

I like how you dont bother with the little stuff, you never fixed your drivers side quarter panel from that tree incendent. I like that syle.

My quater panels are in bad shape also, I hit a tree and the other day I slammed into my cleaning ladies car. The whole passenger quater panel is cracked, and it tore off. Just got some screws and the drill and put it back on, np. (the geniuses Nissan made the rear end out of cheap unpainted plastic, so it is cheap(er) to replace than other vehicles) God I love Xterras

Again, beautiful X!
